The seven rules of love.
Love must affect you profoundly, make you willing to make sacrifices. You cannot merely turn it on and turn it off, it must be something near the center of your life.
Which explains why, when you have to kill it or go insane, it hurts so God-damned much.
No love for the McCain-Kennedy immigration fiasco. John McCain has managed to outdo himself with this one - he has simultaneously got a lock on the Strange New Respect Award while cutting his own throat with respect to the 2008 GOP Presdential nomination. Nobody on any side of the immigration issue likes this bill, with the exception of the wonky Congressional staffers who wrote it and the handful of tone-deaf politicians who are stupid enough to think this will actually solve any of the problems presented by immigration. Lotsa luck, there, guys.
